Life of Michael: The Biography of Michael Palin

By (author) Novick, Jeremy

Michael Palin was a founding member of the much-revered Monty Python's Flying Circus in 1969 and helped changed the face of British comedy. Since then he has gone from strength to strength and his career encompasses an award-winning series of children's books, hugely successful feature films and, of course, his travelogues which attracted unprecedented TV audiences and gave rise to a number of bestselling books. This biography was the first to be written with full access to Michael Palin, and it offers a unique celebration of the life of this gifted and much-loved icon, revealing the influences which have shaped his extraordinary career, and includes his thoughts on everything from Python to the Sahara, and all points in between. 'A celebration of Michael Palin's life, it very effectively conjures up the personality and dry wit of this much-loved figure, along with his apparent artlessness that conceals a hard professionalism'.
